What to do if a company is threatening me for posting on the forum.

Lately, I have been getting several emails from several Goolti users about companies threatening them to remove the posts they have written on the forum. These users are mostly first time entrants into US and are looking for information on the forum.

The companies that do not want to be mentioned in the forum, quickly threaten the users with a lawsuit. The users get scared and write me emails to remove the posting.

I would like to tell all Goolti users that these are tricks played by companies to scare you off and remove their tainted pictures from the forum. Don't fall for this at all. If a company is serious about a lawsuit it will hire a lawyer and that lawyer will send you an official Cease & Desist (C&D) letter. An email carrying a American sounding name at the bottom and a lawyer sounding degree cannot be an official declaration of a lawsuit.

If one does not respond to the C&D, only then the company can move ahead and launch a lawsuit.

So if you get threatening emails from some Goolti company, absolutely do not worry. They are just playing with your mind. Just direct them to the legal section of Goolti.com and I will take care of the rest.
